    Lisa Nandy can get tae.
    Not popular in Scotland at all.
    Won't be watching that 3 hour video btw. Labour's dead here.

    Remember folks 'The Lady And The Knight' is the go-to place for information on the Labour leadership and deputy leadership competition.

    Here's Jess Phillips. Check out her family and their healthcare companies. So many Trainors involved. Dad, mum, brothers, uncles, aunts, cousins: all over the shop.

    They did really well and they so remind me of the people who were activists for Labour when I was growing up in deprivation. Our poverty is far-reaching. Different planet!

    Here's Jess.

    Would I care to listen to 3 hours of drivel for a party which is still in the doldrums with no bright star shining forth?
    We shall have wait and see if they pick wisely and IF it rescues the Labour Party from the Doldrums of political motion.
    So far based upon what I have read,other than what the media has slung as mud, there is none I would like to see.
    Its seems the choice of more of Corbynism, even more left than Corbynism, or talk of moving to the true values of socialism which is a mere platitude in which they either head for Blairstyle or some indistinguishable middle ground.

    Long-Bailey's views on abortion seem dangerously close to those of Rees-Mogg. Could be her undoing when it comes to womens' votes.

    Women's votes? Rees Mogg is an MP with a healthy majority, lots of Somerset women must have voted for him.

    I was looking through Red colour swatches for painting a wall in our house.

    Burgundy Red. To wine, dine and entertain but a bit overbearing. Sir Keir Starmer,
    Mars Red. The god of (Class) War, a rusty and ancient tone.... got to be Rebecca Long Bailey.
    Coraline Red. A softer red with a pinkish tone. Lisa Nandy?
    Phone Box Red. A Metropolitan landmark, Westminster is full of old phoneboxes. Emily Thornbury.
    Passion Red. Straightforward basic instinct, but impetuous . Jess Philips

    Surprised Philips couldn't make it but Thornberry is still in with a shot.

    Thornberry can't get the union backing for the ballot, so she wil have to get 32/33? CLPs to support her.
    Looks like RLB, Starmer and Nandy for the ballot. I think only Nandy can bridge the gap.
    (Allin-Khan would be an interesting alternative to Rayner for deputy)

    I don't think Rees-Mogg was standing for party leader, and neither do I think Long-Bailey is depending on votes from the women of North-East Somerset. ;)

    In any case, Keir Starmer seems to be well ahead at present, although I wonder if, when it comes to the party vote, he will seem to be yet another product of Labour's shift from working-class north to champagne socialist London. Beware the Spectator's description of Starmer as "the Miliband continuity contender".
